Pay on foot trial

This car park currently operates as a ‘pay on foot’ car park as part of an initiative to trial this technology in York.

To use the car park - Take a ticket from the entry barrier and keep it with you (do not leave it in your vehicle). To pay for your parking, go to one of the pay machines when you return at the end of your stay, enter your ticket into the machine and pay the amount requested. Your ticket will be returned to you for insertion into the exit barrier to leave the car park.
